Cloud surely has become a regular echo in the technology sphere, with organisations from different walks of life incorporating their core business workflow on to the cloud. Services like SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS have come to the mainstream with enterprises finding it easy to manage their resources. But the fact of the matter is the overall viability of mobile cloud computing faced a lot of hindrance due to the security implications. Public cloud has always been seen as a compromise among organisations or small business who cannot manage a private cloud. On the other hand, having your corporate data out the secure firewall of the organisation, made many enterprises reluctant of jumping the cloud bandwagon.
Moreover with the coming of BYOD (bring your own device), it made security aspects of cloud services even more imperative. But with developers as well as cloud services providers understanding the importance of security modules, consumers have started to feel secure with cloud computing. A recent survey by Claranet revealed that nearly two thirds of the organisations are now feeling confident of moving their overall resources to the cloud. Most of these organisations are of the view that the current cloud services are secure and at par with on-premise IT solutions. during the survey nearly 300 IT decision-makers were asked a range of questions from a range of SMBs and enterprises. the survey also gave vital insights to the fact that nearly 73 percent of these organisations were using some form of cloud service. Over the years the dependence of cloud computing among enterprises has grown systematically.
The adoption rate of cloud among enterprises clearly suggests that the overall ecosystem of cloud is become secure which is making these business feel at ease while incorporating their core business architecture in the cloud. Overall data security is still a major concern among enterprises, but as the technology is evolving and new forms of interactions are taking center stage, service providers are leveraging upon the feasibility of cloud computing.
But the fact still remains that there is still a lot to be done in terms of making cloud computing a prominent form of computing. From desktops to mobility, cloud has become the core of all data sharing, which is why many analysts are of the view that the future of cloud looks highly proficient. Reports have suggested that cloud would see a massive rise of 600 percent over the next decade, bringing it to the forefront.
All of this satisfaction is due to the improvements of trust among the end users. The first wave of cloud adopters mostly included private cloud, but this second wave is seeing much of the public cloud giving a positive response as cloud services continue to grow. Service providers have also ushered in with the robust cryptography which has made them even more secure than in-house infrastructure as most of the small business cannot afford a flexible private cloud.
Real time information sharing along with improvement in uptime and reliability have successfully reduced pressure on the IT departments and brought software as a service to the forefront.
